The Future of our City’s Streets: A letter from Scott Bricker, Executive Director

Let’s make safe streets a priority

A letter from Scott Bricker, Executive Director

Have you noticed that people seem to be driving faster since the start of the pandemic? With less car traffic, we’re seeing an increase in speeding and crashes. That’s why we’re making vital traffic-calming infrastructure a priority. 

In 2020, we collaborated with the City of Pittsburgh to add 12 miles of new bike lanes, neighborways, and trails.

Take a look at some of these crucial projects we’ve been working on and click here to make a contribution to shape the future of our streets.

New Washington Boulevard Trail. These upgrades link Negley Run to the new Washington Blvd Trail and provide safer connectivity from the East Liberty Blvd bike lanes.
New neighborways! These are signed and marked routes, typically on residential streets, designed to encourage slower traffic speeds.
GAP to Point network of bike lanes that creates an on-street connection from Point State Park to the Smithfield Street Bridge.

I love all of this new green paint, but it’s really just the start.

In 2021, our ambitious goal is to add nearly 40 new and improved miles to Pittsburgh’s bike network. With your help, we can realize this vision for safer streets. Let’s make our city a better place to bike and walk. 

With gratitude,

Scott Bricker
Executive Director
